Virginia News Stand: August 24, 2009

Annotations & Elucidations Creigh Between A POTUS And A Union

Not much comment today. But I do want to point out an ironic note in the National News section: It looks like the NEA is a bit peeved at the Barack Obama for his charter school stand — believe it or not, he's for them! That has Virginia implications as well. Will Creigh Deeds buck the POTUS or the VEA? Either way, that's gotta hurt. Ouch! I feel his pain from here. In Commentary, Star Parker — thank you! — Finally! — someone has framed the central issue in all of these socialist schemes: It's not increased taxes, as bad as that is, it's not government inefficiencies, as incompetent as government is. It's about our freedoms and liberty!
